Why use WordPress for your website?

WordPress is one of the most popular blogging tools available. But many people don’t know it’s a powerful Content Management System (CMS) that can be used for more than just blogging, if done correctly.

WordPress designers are constantly rolling out new themes, ensuring a wide range of options for layout, customization and functionality. Another bonus: with Categories and Tags, it all makes for easy publishing and organic search engines.

With a WordPress site, your custom website can be built with an easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS). A CMS allows you to add your own content, blog, or make changes. You can easily keep your site fresh and up-to-date. You’re not at the mercy of a web designer’s timeframe and priorities, waiting for edits.

There are many free themes from which to choose ( as well as many more available for purchase. There are also many free add-ons (Plug-ins) to help get your website found and place it top of mind. Trust an experienced designer to help you figure out which theme is right for your needs. You can get a free personal WordPress site at but I don’t recommend it for a business. (It may make you appear too cheap to buy a real website)

NOTE: I also offer a short CMS training session to each customer, teaching them how to update their website and make it their own.
